Okay, so i've had my 50" G10 for a week, and the picture is stunning. However, I'm realizing that with my seating distance I would be more well suited for a 65". In store the G10 picture was noticeably better than the S1 of the same size, so I'm asking you guys, what do you think I should do? Will the 65" S1 be almost identical in picture quality to the G10, but just larger? Any differences?


Thanks

Instead of making two threads you could have easily PM'ed or asked one of the mods to modify the thread title.


If you don't use THX, Viera Cast, and won't miss the extra color temps and Audio Out go for it. They are not identical, they are pretty similar in terms of picture quality but the edge goes to the G10. Also, the G10 is said to have better black levels than that of the S1.


The S1 is said to have rather inaccurate colors right out of the box, the greens and reds primarily. However, you can probably eliminate this if you wait for D-Nice to post his reference settings for the S1 or use Sadmakers service menu offsets.


I would go for the 65" though, I wouldn't pass up the bigger screen but i would definitely have it professionally calibrated.


It's up to you, you need to ask yourself 'Am i willing to sacrifice the slightly better picture quality and black levels of the G10 for a bigger screen?'.

There really is a HUGE difference in size here. The prices cant be close can they? Id guess the S1 is at least twice as much.


PS- WierdJohn has also posted his calibrated settings in the TC-PXXS1 thread. Check it out.

I have the 65PZ850U and believe me, bigger is DEFINITELY better. looked very good out of the box and even better after calibration. Go with the bigger set, you won't be sorry. (by the way, if you game, you will be in heaven. I don't but my nephew brought 12 of his friends over to play Madden NCAA 09 and they were stunned by how great the picture was on the big screen. They played for over four hours and had a great time. plus, no IR at all)

I'm in kind of a similar boat, but not nearly the screen size difference. I'm debating between a 54g10 or a 50v10. Sit about 10 feet away, watch mostly hd directv content with an occasional blu-ray and ps3 game. I read about the refresh rates and the v10's frame rate advantages over the g10 and now I'm paralyzed about making a decision. Should I go with the bigger screen or the set that has better capabilities???

After tons of time reading these forums and elsewhere, what I understand the G10 and S1 are the exact same TV with the difference being the G10 has THX, the Viera cast ethernet port, and the 24/direct-in mode that doesn't work well (some say the same thing about THX mode)


Otherwise they are the same TV. So get the bigger one definitely.

Bigger.


I have a 65" Panny plasma and I considered going down to a 60" Pioneer, but losing that extra five inches bugged me. The Pioneer is a great set and if I went with it, I'd have to sit closer to the set and readjust my speaker system. After those adjustments, I'd probably be happy.
